Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines

2 Answers

I have an old ariete centro caffe espresso machine with a coffee grinder. I filled up the resevoir with water and it seems that the pump is not pumping the water through the machine. My question is does it have to be primed, but, how do you do that? Please help. Thanks.

After being in storage for awhile the machine Needs the pump primed
Unplut it and let it sit until it is Cold, May take several hours.
With the water reservoir full, plug the unit in, Turn on the power and Immediately turn the control knob to "Coffee" and the water should begin filling the cup I forgot to tell you to place under the spout.
Or if yopu can find the original instructions follow those.

Hi Hi rolo 124,

does the pump make noise? If so, you can try to fill up the hose with water, sometimes it works. If the noise ist first loud then less loud may be that the water cant flow, because the whole maschine is calcified, try to decalcify, best and secure way with tartaric acid. If there is no noise, the pump may be damaged, or there is a fuse blown (mechanical or electric) at the pump.

Good luck

Jens

Grinder blocked Saeco Caffe Charisma


If the problem is only just stuck then you should try to rutn the gringing adjustment to more gross grinding and first try to remove all remain coffee beans from grinder, with the use of avacuum cleaner try to clean everything from the grinder beans and grined coffee. Then try to make a coffee if it continue to be stuck turn for more gross coffee grinding clean with vacuum and try again is the grinder is only stuck then this will work if after all these the grinder does not turn then you will need to remove it and also you might need to replace it.

Coffee not strong enough. too much water coming out.


Try adjusting the grind on the grinder and there is also a small lever or knob in the bean hopper for adjusting the amount of coffee used per espresso.

Coffee watery


Setting your dose at max and grinder at finest is not good. This means that you are asking the machine to grind coffee really fine, and then dose maximun amount which can lead to the grinder getting clogged. If you are looking for stronger coffee, it is best to have several shots that one that has too much coffe and too fine. For stronger espresso, use less water instead of more coffee. Two shots of 2 oz. espresso (made with 7 grams of coffee) are more flavorful & sweeter than one shot of 4-oz. espresso made with 14 grams of coffee which could clog your grinder and door/channel. At this point, you need to clean the grinder ( inlcuding the door/channel). I suggest you have an Authorized SAECO Service Center check your machine. Contact Saeco USA Inc. to located a Service Center near you at 800-933-7876 (toll-free), ask for customer support, or contact SAECO via e-mail at : outlet@saeco-usa.com

My machine has been sounding louder and louder during the dispensing process


Your grinder is probably due for cleaning. If in warrantee, it may be covered. If not, need to contact SAECO for an authroized
Service Center. Also note that if you use dark roasted beans ( which are oily) + you store beans in refrigerator/freezer, you will definitely have to clean the grinder more often. Contact Saeco USA Inc. to located a Service Center near you at 800-933-7876 (toll-free), ask for customer support, or contact SAECO via e-mail at : outlet@saeco-usa.com
